Attempt to change password for server xxxxxx failed. Error Code 0x8819

Anybody seen the following message when users are trying to reset
their own pwds:

"Attempt to change password for server xxxxxx failed. Error Code
0x8819"

Our help desk folks are able to reset the user's pwds without issue.
This began happening after a server was mistakenly removed from eDir
and then added back in. It was one of our DA servers, so I had to go
into Con-Slow-One and fix that and then we cycled the server. We have
2 DAs defined in our tree, and we have a scoped SLP Scope. We use
static DAs configured in the Novell client settings and the DA ip
addresses haven't changed.

We were getting error messages immediately after logging in but before
the login script ran "loginwnt.dll error -890, the specified server
doesn't exist." I resolved that by making sure that all of the user
objects had a valid server listed under General > Environment >
Default server. Doing that solved the error message, but we're still
getting the error code above when a user tries to change his/her
password. My Novell skills are a bit rusty since we are in the
process of moving to M$ (a little tongue-in-cheek there).

Any help is appreciated.

8819 errors are what you'd normally expect to see loggin in when there
was problem with licensing - not on changing passwords.

Do you have NMAS/universal passwords in use?

Hamish-

I went into the container and deleted the NLS_LSP_xxxx object for the
server in question. I then ran SETUPNLS.NLM on the server. That
resulted in a new NLS_LSP_XXXXXX object in the server's context. It
appears that these steps were missed after the server was removed and
then readded to eDir. I am waiting for the users to try to reset
their own passwords. We should get some of that activity as soon as
the new day, Friday 02/02/07, begins.

Does this sound like a scenario that would cause the 8819 errors to
occur when users tried to reset their own passwords?

I'll post again as soon as I have some feedback from our help desk.

Well, fixing the server licensing issue did not resolve the "Attempt
to change password for server xxxxxx failed. Error Code
0x8819" errors. Any other ideas on what to check?
